Corporations can now buy access to the President and all the President’s men for $500,000. We call that crony corporatism or crony socialism.
Jay Carney, in the following video, attempts to explain that Obama’s Organizing for America, now known as Organizing for Action, is a separate organization from the President’s campaign. The OFA has almost the same name, has almost the same employees, and they are keeping the Obama symbol. (I’m sure they never speak to or get their marching orders from the President)
Obama wants to separate the corrupt influence of outside groups in DC, Carney said. Huh?
Meanwhile, if you give $500,000 to this group, you get to meet with Obama and/or his officials. So, being this is secret, corporations can give the money secretly and then influence the President and his officials. If a corporation wants grants (our tax money), they have the access they need to convince the president. If they don’t give, they don’t have access they need.
Obama’s propaganda organization, Organizing for Action, has in essence established an arm for big corporations. So we will have big government and big corporations running the country.
While claiming the administration is transparent, they’re lying about this secret organization of his that is currently pushing his immigration plan, gun control, Republicans are destroying the world campaign, and so on…
At the same time, Obama is crying about the sequestration cuts which he insisted upon – he is giving $83 billion of our money to banks each year. The first year of sequestration cuts is $44 billion. Why not cut the big banks instead? Isn’t that what he was sent to DC to do?
He will not deal with the big ticket items that are killing us and which must be dealt with – social security, Medicare, Medicaid, and, now thanks to him, Obamacare.
Obama is still blaming the Republicans for sequester though it’s his baby, baby, it’s all his.
Bob Woodward, a liberal who brought down Richard Nixon with his investigative reporting skills wrote:
“There was an insistence on the part of Republicans in Congress for there to be some automatic trigger,” Lew said while campaigning in Florida. It “was very much rooted in the Republican congressional insistence that there be an automatic measure.”
The president and Lew had this wrong. My extensive reporting for my book “The Price of Politics” shows that the automatic spending cuts were initiated by the White House and were the brainchild of Lew and White House congressional relations chief Rob Nabors — probably the foremost experts on budget issues in the senior ranks of the federal government.
Obama personally approved of the plan for Lew and Nabors to propose the sequester to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.). They did so at 2:30 p.m. July 27, 2011, according to interviews with two senior White House aides who were directly involved.
Max Baucus, an Obama Democrat, confirmed that sequester was Obama’s idea. It’s his baby, man.
